    Polandball Wiki

    Li Liangball or simply Liangball was a short-lived empire declared by Suiball warlord Li Gui (李軌) in Wuweiball during the Sui-Tang Transition .

    During its heyday, Li Liangball controlled parts of Western Gansuball. In 619, Li Liangball was invaded and anschlussed by Tangball.

    History

    Background

    Despite Suiball's achievements, its populace grew increasingly restless as Suiball continued to conscript more men into perilous wars against Goguryeoball. Agrarian revolts became so organised and frequent enough, that, by 614, Suiball's forces could not reliably defeat them.[2]

    The nonperformance of Suiball's army marked the rise of various prominent local warlords, like Li Gui, Li Liangball's founder and first emperor. Li was born into a wealthy family, serving Suiball as a military officer in Wuweiball prior to rebelling. He apparently liked reading and was skilled in debating.[3]

    Prince of Liang

    In 617, Li Gui declared himself Prince of Liangball (涼王) in response to the threats posed by neighboring rebel leader Xue Ju (薛舉), who had just declared the state of Xue Qinball in Lanzhouball. As anticipated by Li Gui, Xue Qinball attempted to invade Li Liangball in 617 but was repulsed by general Li Yun (李贇).

    Establishment & Abolishment

    Li Gui claimed emperorship and established Li Liangball in the winter of 618, but began to mismanage Li Liangball, barring effective disaster relief and upsetting the alliances he crafted with the Tujue.[4]

    Hitherto this point, Li Liangball maintained cordial relations with Tangball, and effectively governed independently. In the spring of 619 however, Li Gui was offered to submit to Tangball and become the Prince of Liang. Li rejected the offer, so Li Liangball became an enemy of Tangball from then on.

    In the summer of 619, Tangball sent An Xinggui (安興貴) into Li Liangball on a mission to undermine Li Liangball's rule. Later, An led a rebellion against Li Gui and successfully sieged Wuwei. Li Gui was taken to Chang'anball and executed, thus ending Li Liangball.[5]
